Re: Running 220v water heater on 110v supply

If you have crud in the escaping water, some of that crud is possibly catching in the relief valve and preventing it staying fully closed. Manually operating the valve a number of times to flush it out may help. Also there is the simple answer that the relief valve is faulty and it is not overheating.

The only way to drain the water heater is by the drain on the bottom. Don't worry about the elements.

1) Turn the electric power to the heater Off before you drain it or you will burn out the element very quickly.

2) You need to vent the heater tank to drain it. Open a hot water faucet so air can get in and replace the water that you are trying to drain.
